Simply put – Honest and well made.
From a technical viewpoint, very well executed – lighting and Cinematography were excellent. As for writing – every character in this is so well conveyed that the actors are able to do the story justice. Joaquin Phoenix did an excellent job as expected – both him and Jonah Hill really showed some emotional range in their roles. Rooney Mara’s performance was great and her chemistry with Mr. Callahan was palpable; although not nearly as much so as Mr. Callahan’s screen chemistry with Donny. Even the time Jack Black and Joaquin have on screen together is magical – and weirdly enough I don’t think they could’ve cast anyone better for Jack Black’s character.
The movie ended up being more of an exploration of 12 step program than I expected, but by the end it actually gave me deeper insight and understanding of those struggling with alcoholism who seek help. Knowing tons of people who’ve gone through the program (recurring ones and success stories) it’s given me a slightly deeper appreciation for anyone’s struggle/experience.
Joaquin Phoenix and Jonah Hill are at their all time best here
Two- time Academy Award Nominee Director Gus Van Sant (“Good Will Hunting,” “Milk”) once again hits is out of the park here, with this sure be nominated film about comic writer (and film producer here) John Callahan. Callahan (touchingly played by Joaquin Phoenix) is a partier, specializing in alcohol. When he meets his match in Dexter (Jack Black), their one night escaped leaves Callahan permanently in a wheel chair. Through his recovery, social worker/girlfriend Unna introduces him to an AA group, lead by Donnie (beautifully portrayed by Jonah Hill). Working with Donnie and his piglets (AA ensemble group: Beth Ditto, Mark Webber “13 Sins,” Kim Gordon “The Perks of being a Wallflower, “Ronnie Adreain “Key and Peele” and Udo Kier “Downsizing”), and in his made for speed wheel chair, Callahan grows into the man he was supposed to be, while coming in touch with his past and establishing himself as a satirical cartoonist. Because the real John Callahan is a cartoonist with a wacky sense of humor, “Don’t Worry…” manages to keep the tragedy of this real life story light-hearted and funny, while equally tragic. We know Phoenix’s has the ability to give weight to these type of unique characters, but it is Hill who really steps outside of his usual comic comfort zone here, and it’s beautiful to watch both these guys in action. It’s rare that such honesty in film can be delivered with such humor. “Don’t Worry…” will be nominated come award season, so now is your chance to be the first to see this film.
